For more than 30 years, the Florida boat accident attorney at Rivkind Margulies & Rivkind, P.A. has represented injured cruise ship passengers from around the world. We know that cruise ship injury claims can differ significantly from general personal injury suits. Our cruise ship accident lawyers are well-versed in the details of these kinds of claims and have handled cases around the country against cruise lines and cruise ships responsible for passenger injuries.
There are many cruise ships and boats coming in and out of ports all over the world at any given time. Unfortunately, not every day at sea is “smooth sailing,” and accidents happen frequently as a result of negligent or reckless conduct by various parties. In order to recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other losses resulting from a cruise ship accident, a victim or their family usually must be able to show that the defendant acted negligently.
